Primary school education has changed dramatically in recent years and in The Class Next Door, parents experience what it's like for their 11 year old kids as they go back to school.

For one half term a class of parents will study the same curriculum as their children, who will be in the classroom next door. They will have the same regime, don the school's uniform, sit cross legged in assembly and do PE and recorder lessons as well as face the same discipline if they misbehave.

With greater pressure on primary school children to perform in SATs, the new education reforms and the rise of grammar school culture, there has never been more of a need for us to find out exactly what is expected of our children, and what sort of pressures they are under today.

In 1981 South Korean band Oxen 80 (옥슨80) recorded cover of the song with title “In A Lonely Night” (그대 떠난 이 밤에). In Finnish, the song was recorded in 1977 by Kari Tapio, with the title “Viisitoista kesää” (Fifteen summers). The arrangement is by Veikko Samuli and the Finnish lyrics by Juha Vainio. In Norwegian, there is a translation, “I 24 år har jeg bodd i samme gård som Anne”. There are also other songs to the same tune. “Storholt, Stensen, Stenshjemmet, Sjøbrend åsså'n Hjallis” deals about the famous Norwegian speed skating team known as The Four Aces. The single was released in 1977 by Stein Ingebrigtsen & Store Stå and peaked at No. 3 in the Norwegian VG-lista. A German version of the song, titled “Tür an Tür mit Alice”, was a hit for Howard Carpendale in 1977. The single peaked at No. 8 in Germany and Switzerland and at No. 11 in Austria. In Czechoslovakia the song was released on 21 February 1973 under the title “Alenka v říši divů” (Alice in Wonderland), performed by Karel Zich. There has also been a parody under the name Denis in Czech Republic. A Hungarian version was performed by István Torontáli with the title 'Drága Alice' ('Dear Alice'), including lyrics translated by Tibor Bornai In former Yugoslavia, Toni Montano made a song based on original tune and named it '10 godina' ('10 years'). A Russian version of the song, titled “Элис” (Alice) was released by Конец фильма(Movie End) rock band in 2001 as the closing song of their studio album Soundtracks (Goodbye, innocence). The humorous lyrics are driven by the famous “Who the ... is Alice?” interjection (no profanity in Russian version) and are about some company considering crashing at Alice's place, indeed answering to the ever repeated question in form of a long list of her virtues.
